Wadia 170i compatible with emCore Rockbox?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I just discovered that Rockbox is now available for the Gen 6 and 7 iPod Classics, so I finally have a use for my Gen 6 iPod.  Software seems to be stable, so it's time to revisit the old question of the Wadia 170i. 

 

I know the 170i will take a digital signal from a Gen 6 iPod, but does that functionality still survive when running the emCore Rockbox? 

 

Anyone try it to confirm???

I don't think it will.  I have a classic 160 that I recently rockboxed and the Pure I-20 dock I was using will no longer work.  The solution seems to be a dual boot capability for the Ipod, so you can run either Rockbox or iOS, but it's still "in development", I believe.  There is an entire thread here on the Classic & Rockbox that should have a definitive answer.

I wasn't aware there was a thread for the Classic with Rockbox.  Do you have a link?
